Snapchat for those born before 1993 (Part 2 of 3)


Now you know how to navigate within Snapchat. You might be wondering what’s next.

Setting up your Snapchat Selfie introduces us to the quirky side of Snapchat

Next we’re going to set up your profile picture, or your Snapchat Selfie (which will introduce you to a bit more about how Snaps work).

Now you’ll press the Snap button and the camera will Snap 5 pictures of you in rapid succession. This creates a humorous flipbook-style selfie series that is sure to make your friends chuckle.

As you can see, my selfies came out looking goofy, as I chose to make random funny faces. It’s not perfect, but I’ll leave it for now.

Adding friends is required for you to privately message one another

Now we’ll go back to the previous screen to start adding friends.

Click add from Address Book to see which of your cell phone contacts are already on Snapchat. I’m sure you’ll figure that part out from there.

Coming next, we’ll go over how to make sense of your Snapchat inbox, and then we’ll cover Stories (where the potential lies for many brands.)
